I'm not sure I understand your reply. Are yours like the tall style shown in my picture? I am looking for that tall style :)

Thanks, Kim. I've been looking for 2 years and have found no reproductions and only 4 originals. These were only used on AA trucks through mid '28, so not a lot out there. I'd give a good price to anyone that can round some up!

I looked in the 2019 Snyders catalog. It was in there, $128. Each.. :shock: Keep looking..
If I had a small lathe I'd make you some..

Good luck...

Thanks, I appreciate the effort but looking at my 2019 Snyders catalog I only see the early '28 lug nuts for the Model A car, on Page A-99. These are smaller than for the truck (11/16" hex vs 15/16" for the truck). Am I looking in the wrong place?

The flats on those nuts appear to be broached. They are not a lathe project

Oh! But you start with Hex stock, not round stock. Or,, you can start with round stock and mill the flats. Or,,, you can just buy them... :shock:

Actually! I know how to turn the flats using a lathe. ( but now I'm just showing off...).. I used to be a shop teacher, then a machinist / die maker/ then Injection mold maker. Then went onto Advance technology manager of a large tier one auto supplier. Now I just mow the lawn. :cry:

If he could buy them this thread wouldn't exist. Better get back to your lawn.
